Cardiac Catheterization

The EHMC Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory is a new advanced technology suite which opened in February 1993. To insure patient comfort and the latest in cardiac care cardiac catheterization procedures are conducted in a high tech, state of the art laboratory equipped with a specialized recovery area.

An EHMC cardiac catheterization is one of the most accurate and sophisticated diagnostic tools for examining the heart. EHMC has the most advanced computerized digital cardiac catheterization imaging equipment in New Jersey and the metropolitan area.

The EHMC Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory is unique in the United States for its ability to facilitate family cardiac counseling by providing computerized image review in a counseling room environment.

The laboratory also has received recognition for its ergonomic design, and a conference facility that integrates various advanced cardiac-imaging technologies for use by EHMC cardiologists and cardiac nurses. The well-attended EHMC Cardiac Catheterization Conference is held weekly in the suite's conference center.

The use of leading technologies in this laboratory allows high-resolution cardiac imaging and imaging devices to provide rapid and accurate diagnosis in-patients with coronary, valvular or other heart disease. Same day discharge is now routine.
